Hickenlooper Asks Some State Managers To Reapply

DENVER (AP) – Colorado’s governor is asking senior managers in state government to reapply for their jobs.

Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper has told 96 people in the state’s “senior executive service” to reapply for their jobs. The Denver Post first reported the move Tuesday.

The senior managers work in a variety of departments, from the Colorado Lottery to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation. They receive higher pay than other managers in exchange for giving up protections afforded classified state employees. Instead, they work on annual contracts.

Others asked to reapply include the state veterinarian and the manager of the Colorado State Fair.

A Hickenlooper spokeswoman said Tuesday that the governor hopes to decide which of those managers to keep on by midsummer.
